Hi ps2newz, i'm a new member and my only purpose is to seek help in the Gamecube scene.
We at maxconsole have been discussing some detailed information about the Gamecube and how we would be able to boot mini-dvds. please take a brief moment to read page 1 of this thread http://forums.maxconsole.com/showthr...5&pagenumber=1 It gives some detailed information about the Gamecube's firmware. The Gamecube actually uses a regular mini dvd-rom drive only with some slight modifications in the firmware. I really hope you have read the page 1, let's continue on
To summarize the events. please take a moment and see the pdf attached below. The pdf stated some Hardware Tools that Nintendo uses. One of the main hardware is the "NR-Writer" it is actually just a DVD Burner(Panasonic Matshita SW-9501), but with some slight firmware modifications that Nintendo made on the pits. The NR Disc is just really a dvd-r technology but it's modified to match the pits of the NR-Writer, The Gamecube itself as well uses a mini-dvd rom with modified pits.
This brings up to a point that the Gamecube doesn't really use a different format, they only diverted the pits, they changed how the traffic goes from a disc, The real Copy Protection that the Nintendo Gamecube have, has something to do with the "PITS" after all... it might be possible to develop a modchip that would be able to make a new firmware flashed onto the mini-dvd rom drive of the GC to reverse technology such "pits" So that we would be able to boot a regular mini-dvd disc in the Gamecube.
btw, I'm also known as "Seeker" at the dms3 forums and i have also seeked help there, I woudn't probably convince the DMS Team to make such a modchip, but maybe PS2NEWZ can perhaps? help? yea i know it's insane to get help to make a modchip, i just wanted to spread this information, maybe someone would be interested.
Anyway Thank You for Reading
